9780811845106: Is Your Straight Man Gay Enough?: The Ultimate Renovation Guide Tips from a Girl in Distress and Her Gay Best Friend

If Queer Eye for the Straight Guy has taught us anything, it's that women everywhere want their men to be a little more gay. Alas, the fab five can't knock down every man's door, and most women fear that the road from beer-swilling schlub to gallery-hopping Valentino is just too long and winding (and ladies, you know he won't ask for directions). Is Your Straight Man Gay Enough? is here to help. Nan Shipley and her gay best friend Jason Anthony take on straight-guy habits (crotch-scratching and air guitar), straight-guy style (he thinks dressing well means extra Thousand Island), and straight-guy home decor (Pleather and milk crates). Quick questionnaires identify problem areas, and straightforward advice helps women renovate their men. He can be more Sample Sale Saturday than Superbowl Sunday. He can cry at weddings and be nice to old ladies. He can trim his nose hairs, and still fix your leaky faucet. In short, he can be a little gay, all man, and a lot of fun.

About the Author:

Jason Anthony has worked extensively in the film industry and has been Nan's best friend since they were both twelve years old. He lives in New York.

Nan Shipley is a New York-based literary scout married to a man who traded in ESPN for the Food Network, thanks to the help of Jason, Nan's gay best friend.

From Publishers Weekly:

For anyone who's been living under a rock for the past three years and hasn't caught an episode of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, here's a news flash: straight men, with their three-track minds (sports, food, sex), could become much better partners to their girlfriends or wives if they upped their knowledge of culture, fashion, grooming, food and wine—i.e., if they became just a little gay. Shipley, owner of Georgica Literary Productions, and her "GBF" (gay best friend) Anthony, a former film exec, take a retro approach to advising women on making over their men, with vintage-style type and Jetsons-ish drawings. Charts, diagrams and illustrations pepper the pages, and quizzes test dudes' reading levels (as a kid, did he most identify with Holden Caulfield, Encyclopedia Brown, Dorian Gray or Marla Maples?) and other arbiters of taste. Shipley and Anthony can be quite a hoot, especially when they're dishing advice on gift-giving ("Most men don't understand that, regardless of what women say, what they would really like is jewelry"). But at bottom, the book is little more than fluff. Self-absorbed women may be the only ones who care about making their men "JGE" (just gay enough); for them, this book may be just the thing.
